The text on Crystal’s website is a tad different than the Recipient email.
  14. Maybe Serenity will begin to sail from Singapore? Today, cruise fares exploded: Los Angeles - Rome, Los Angeles - London, Los Angeles - Brisbane, Brisbane - Hong Kong, etc. Fares from Singapore - London are static — so far.
